Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 17, 2019

You didn't really think it would stop with gay marriage, did you? This was inevitable, and here's why: One of the lynchpins of the gay rights movement is to establish equivalency with racial minorities.

Why stop there? How about reparations for everyone who isn't a white male?

Totally fair, but I would rather have my taxes lowered than have money given to me from taxes that I paid that were raised to give me money.

How about you?

I'd rather pay taxes and have a government that provides services than not pay taxes and have a government that does not provide services.

What's the point of having a government if it's not going to provide services?

Nothing wrong with that sentence, it is intentionally long to highlight the absurdity of your position. So which is it, would you rather have reparations paid to you with taxes that you paid to the government in the first place or have to pay less taxes?

A government isnt supposed to provide "services". It's supposed to protect you and handle foreign affairs and treaties. Everything else is up to the individual.

"So which is it, would you rather have reparations paid to you"

It's not about me.

I want services for people less fortunate than me.

We have a fundamental difference in our expectations and measures of performance of what government should provide.

#10 that's pretty much the difference.

Services like markets that are regulated so we don't get milk with formaldehyde in it.

I want those things, and it's worth the taxes it costs to get them.

The coat in taxes is far less than the cost of cleaning up the consequences of poison in our food.

Reparations are not the same as services.

Try again without moving those goalposts.

What a weird article. It's obvious no one read it. I doubt Boaz did.

First. This tidbit is in the commentary section. Then there's the giant head of Herman Cane grinning at the top of the "The Western Journal".

Furthermore, there are no quotes, no statements from anyone, no facts. It's literally commentary from the author.

It's a fictional tale, a story to scare the homophobes.

Then Boaz creates a divisive headline specifically attempting to marginalize Black Americans.

It's a trifecta of anger, ignorance, and hatred.

Republicans live for this stuff.

Snoofy was just trying to hijack the thread to talk about the GOP cutting benefits because of the tax cut.

Of course the article is ridiculous, but the whole idea of "reparations", in its truest sense, is also ridiculous for either impacted group.

You don't understand how ideas go from fringe to mainstream. First it starts with advocacy in leftwing publications and on campus. Then it leaps to NY Times op-ed pieces. Then a few politicians say they would "consider it." Then a few endorse it. Then it gains majority support by the Democrat left. That's been the trajectory for pro-immigration/de facto open borders, "democratic socialism," black repartions, new geen socialism, etc. It appears the length of time from fringe to mainstream has accelerated.

And to this moment Native populations are still given little to no actual powers within the United States government. If there were any people who deserve first reparations..

Not to diminish the wrongs done en mass to entire populations, cultures and sub-cultures, but Native voices are not being heard in the halls of power. Lots of bronze and marble statuary of the popular colonists though.. Those MAGA kids are what we have to look forward to leading this world into another ethnic war.

Homosexuals represent approximately 10% of all populations everyplace and throughout time. It's apparently a natural balance among all creatures.

Oh, ya, your pension is a gift. You got paid when you were in. You aren't any more special than average Americans who go to work day after day, but your party isn't for them having the same.

Boaz hates all the rights he didn't have before the 1960's

-The right to live as a black man with equal rights
-The right to vote without jumping through hoops
-The right to serve as an officer in the military
-The right to buy a home where he wants to
-The right to live in North Carolina without fear of being lynched
-The right to drink out of any drinking fountain or be served in any restaurant

And many, many more.

All thanks to the 'liberals' he so willingly disparages for making the life he lives today even possible.

What an ungrateful, deranged twerp. Guess he doesn't realize liberals made his life possible, or that when WWI vets came home, Republicans called them moochers for wanting to be taken care of.

Because you're both mocking black people while simultaneously belittling what reparations mean to them.

You're also setting black people at odds with homosexuals because you're implying homosexuals are trying to get something black people are due.

It's your headline. You decided to write it the way you did.

Also. It's nonsense for homosexuals to want reparations. That's not what reparations are for. They're to pay back slaves for the labor they provided to help build this nation. To pay them back for what was stolen from them by their masters.

How does this apply to homosexuals? It doesn't.

Stop posting garbage. .

You got paid when you were in.

No, I signed a contract with the U.S. Government. The terms of the contract said if I did a minimum of 20 years, I would get a pension. If you dont like that, change it. But then see how many people will be willing to risk their lives to protect you being a liberal.

Because you're both mocking black people while simultaneously belittling what reparations mean to them.

Actually, I'm not. Do I believe in reparations? No, but I do understand the reason for them. Is that a burden we need to put on the America of today, an America that had nothing to do with enslaving someone 200 years ago? No, I dont think so. It's only serving to further divide the nation along racial lines. But that's what liberals want anyway.

It's your headline. You decided to write it the way you did.

And it's accurate. Gays and homosexuals are just trying to ride on the success of the Civil Rights movement. That pisses off alot more blacks than you know. Homosexuals have not been harmed 1/1000th's as much as American blacks. And to think they would try to use our cause, or the framework for our cause, to equate their worldview with ours is insulting.
